Why do all mystery games start just after all the fun is over?
Welcome to Lucky Mansion: a sprawling country estate full of unusual weapons, good hiding places and craven killers. Killers like you.
The object? Kill Doctor Lucky. Find a weapon, track the old man down, and take him out. The obstacles? For one thing all of your friends would rather do it first. For another, Doctor Lucky is aptly named.
You would think that after being stabbed, hung, poisoned, and poked in the eye, the old Doctor would just lie down and accept his fate. But he’s got more lives than Rasputin, and an uncanny knack for dodging your best traps.
Stick to it. Persevere. The Doctor’s luck won’t last forever. Before the night is over, someone is going to kill Doctor Lucky.
Wouldn’t you rather it was you?
Kill Doctor Lucky was the original Cheapass Game, #CAG 001, and won the Origins Award for Best Abstract Board Game of 1997. Since then it has been reprinted in many editions, and it will return in a 20th Anniversary Edition in early 2016.
This is the free version, based on the 2002 "Director's Cut" of Kill Doctor Lucky. It contains the original board, the bonus "Castle" board, the 2002 card deck and the Director's Cut rulebook, edited for this new edition. And it's completely free for you to download, print and share.
The 20th Anniversary edition will be a complete overhaul of the artwork and game rules, similar to the new card game version, Get Lucky.
